Catriona the Campervan

  1. Is that a gasit tank like mine? Looks even bigger than mine (I’ve the 20l).
    I’m planning on doing exactly the same to ours painting it with tinted raptor. Hopefully in the next few weeks.

  3. Yes, it is a gasIt tank. It’s the 30 litre tank so should hold 24 litres when filled to 80%.

    Glad to hear that someone else is thinking along the same lines. I thin Raptor is probably the best bet as any chips no matter how small with pop out with the red coming through. Did consider having it powder coated but reckon that tinted raptor will give the closest match.

    Re-wiring was a joy. Wish those new looms came with instructions.

    We turned it around several times before we finally worked out what went where. Might have helped if all the original wires hadn’t turned Grey after shot blasting and coating in zinc primer.

    All painted. Was a bit of a Matt finish with the raptor but seems pretty appropriate as it will be under the vehicle. Hope your tank turns out at least as good.

  7. Finally been driving Catriona after what feels like a lifetime to get here. Was great to get her out in the sunshine and on the open road again. Still running in the engine after a fabulous rebuild from Paul at Aircooled engines and the excellent help from Donald Harvey at Tillicoutry. Was amazing to have two guys so knowledgeable about all things VW.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
